Helen’s ACW is preparing for their annual BUNNY RUN.  On Monday, April 10, we will go to the Surrey Food Bank and hand out Easter Gifts to the children and grandchildren of those in need in our community.  If you would like to support this project, donations of story books, colouring books, crayons, stickers, new, small to medium-sized stuffed animals, games and chalk for children ages 2 to 10 years old would be most welcome. We will also include a small amount of candy which has already been donated.  

Father Ayoob Adwar – Father Ayoob’s priestly orders will be received into the Anglican Church by Bishop Melissa on Sunday, March 26th at a 6pm service at the Church of the Epiphany here in Surrey.  Everyone is invited to come along and give their support to Ayoob who has been with us for about a year in a  liturgical placement to learn the ways of Anglican worship.  

Mothering Sunday, March 26th – On the 4th Sunday of Lent we relax the Lenten Fast to remember our Mother Church and gather together as a whole community of faith in a big way.  On this day we will have a pot luck lunch following the service.  Please bring your most wonderful dishes of food to share with everyone that day.  Lunch will begin immediately following the service.  This is a great time to invite friends, family, and to remind those who we may have seen at St. Helen’s for a while.
